ultraviolet set resin for cementing PE
Posted by rob44 on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 7:51 PM

I have just recently been using ultraviolet set resin (like bondic) to attach PE parts with great success. The advantage is you place a little on (I use a toothpick) hold the part in position and use a UV light to set it in a few seconds.

 

I believe the bond is superior then CA cement in strength and much easier to apply without waiting for it to set up. I bought the resin in a larger container and a 395 nm ultraviolet flashlight each for under $10 on Amazon.

To me this ultraviolet setting resin is significantly easier to use then CA

For attaching PE railing to a ship I still like using Arleens tacky glue, but that to may change when I get more experience.

My experience has not shown it stronger than gel CA, but it sure is stronger than white glue/window glue, and it does not fog transparent parts.  So I use it for windows and canopies.  However, it does seem to age, the resin gets thicker, and gets harder to apply after awhile, and I have done to buying fresh for projects with a lot of transparent parts.

Aha!

      I certainly find the " Bondic Pen" easier to use!
